Subject: Nice all-around
Great songs in this line-up. Classic Sugar Magnolia equipment failure. I guess everything wasn't "just exactly perfect" before they started. The El Paso in this line-up is very slow and enjoyable. Great SBD quality.

Subject: The down side of '71
Not at the level of other shows from around this time. Try 4/21 or 14. The sound of the recording seems veiled. Pig to the rescue.

A bit slow to start off but by the time Pigpen gets going on Good Lovin' it all kicks in.Lots of great performances but that GDTRFB is absolutely amazing.

This was a small venue. NRPS opened up. Gerry and the boys were really on that night.

Subject: my first show
This show was awesome. I split a little white pill in half then mistakenly slurped up both halves. I sat 10 feet in front of Jerry. The show was so intense that I never moved and had no feeling on the side of my left foot for 5 years.

I remember it well. I was a senior in HS. Only heard a couple of Dead albums before that.
The one and only time I got to see Pigpen. They were still a five piece band then(Mickey Hart had left the band at that time}.
The New Riders of The Purple Sage opened the show
W/ Jerry Garcia on Pedal Steel.
The only bad part was some guy named Allen kept throwing oranges at me.

Super 71' Soundboard!

Thirty eight years and eight days ago the GRATEFUL DEAD were performing at Allegheny College, in Meadville, Pennsylvania, I wish I was there.

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1971 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

"Classic 1971 Sound."

Solid, "In the Pocket" performances of all our favorite 71' songs.

Get all the April 71' shows, listen how they develop into "Ladies & Gentlemen The GRATEFUL DEAD" 4-25-29, shows from the Fillmore East, amazing!

This show was a blast and is captured beautifully here. A very intimate setting, and a crowd that was primed and gliding with the scene. I was there (as Lou Sleaves) with a group of friends, some from Virginia - Buckeyes, Dick (AKA Bones), Helmet Head, meableffutS, Cliff, Kiff, Madman, Carl. We brought a shopping bag full of oranges and threw them around in the crowd in that small, old gym. The Dead were very friendly and had a running conversation wih the crowd, not separated from them by more than a few feet. The atmosphere was bright, upbeat, trippy.

Subject: Nice '71 find
I've always had a soft spot in my heart for '71 Dead shows. Where did this show come from? I wasn't aware of it's existance until I stumbled across it here. What a nice surprise to find such a great sounding show and one that I've never heard before. Quality is excellent and the boys are smoking.

Subject: Holy shit!
Where did this little nugget come from? It's not really listed in Deadbase or the Compendium, and I streamed it just because I'm trying to turn on a buddy who lived near there, and I'm blown away. Every tune is played beautifully, and Garcia just flat out shreds on a number of songs. the Bertha and Deal both feature those loud sharp solos that sound like he's holding a downed power line in his teeth. Puts the electric in electric guitar for sure. I for one am always a fan of obscure shows. This one is sweet. If you like 71 you should download it. It'll put a smile on your face.

This is a fantastic show and sound quality is superb. What a shame that 5 songs are missing! I would love to have the whole show!

Subject: Fantastic
How many times can one say "wow" during playback? That's the question you'll be asking yourself. From the first song on this show doesn't disappoint. Great stuff to be sure. Everyone is in great form. Fantastic 1971 show. I'm very surprised I've never heard others mention this show.
